Minuteman Press International (Farmingdale, New York), a leading design, marketing and printing franchise with nearly 1,000 franchisees, has unveiled a new dye sublimation training initiative. In conjunction with securing new and ongoing partnerships with key dye-sublimation printing experts and suppliers, Minuteman Press recently completed dye sublimation training for its regional field support representatives at its world headquarters in Farmingdale, New York. Dye sublimation printing, as most printers know, uses heat and pressure to transfer high-quality images or pictures onto items such as plastic, metal, wood, fabric and more. Custom-branded apparel, signs, name tags, artwork and promotional products – including drinkware, cellphone covers and picture frames – can be decorated using dye-sublimation printing.

“At Minuteman Press, our main goal is always to support our franchise owners in any way we can,” said Michael Jutt, Minuteman Press International Executive Vice President and Director of Training. “We have put in the time and the resources to research dye-sublimation printing and how to best implement it across our franchise system. With our key suppliers in place and our local support teams out in the field further educating and training our franchise owners and their employees, we’re excited about where this expansion of products and services will lead,” he added.
